How to protect the computer?

To prevent these problems, you must know exactly in which way got onto the system. Adware use plenty of ways, but we'll divide them on three basic groups:

  • Download from an untrusted website. There are web-sites that propagate the viruses and they don't even try to hide it. The features of these programs are usual, they are: search for the newest toll-free content such as movies, music and games, the enhancement of Web browsing, the performance of specific tasks in Facebook, acting installation of each driver or update for your gear, search for most profitable offers on the Net. All of these features are already integrated into the browsers, or present in the operating system tools list, so, it means that these programs are just useless, and the site, which spreads them is, most likely, harmful.
  • Download in bundles with worthy software. If you have ever installed the free tools, you know what that means. You download the tool, and during the installation there is a window with the proposal to install the marvelous media player, browser, the new toolbar for it, AV-program, and God knows what else. You do not even need to decide anything because the all boxes are already checked, and in some cases, it will be really difficult to cancel the unwanted installations.
  • The straight installation by user. It is very possible, because when some users see an attractive description of software, they decide that it is highly effective.

The penetration via e-mail is also very effective, but this method is used most of the times by ransomware and viruses, and not by advertisement software. We hope that by the time you're reading these words, will be completely removed from the PC. If you choose the deletion in manual manner, you have to know how to determine that there is malware on your laptop.

  • Slow boot of OS. The tools that run at startup are, in most cases, the reason of slow boot. On the taskbar you will see all currently working programs, and choose the ones that are reliable and which aren't.
  • Advertisement are everywhere. If the amount of ads has grown up notably - this is, most likely, the unwanted software.
  • Critical failures while using software, shutdown or reboot of a workstation without the user's consent.
  • The emergence of the unknown tools on your computer. If the tool shows up on your PC without your consent - it is, nothing else than the malware.

Any of these red flags shows the malware threat, and if you react in time - you will prevent the harm. Don't trust in everything you see on the Web, look at the condition of your computer, and it will anytime be fast and effective.
